PLEASE NOTE: The following pages are recommendations for the programs. They do not necessarily show all the options for the core curriculum. For those, please refer to the core curriculum page.
Transfer Programs are designed for students who plan to transfer to four-year colleges or universities upon the completion of two years of academic work at GPC. In addition to variations in general education requirements, senior colleges and universities vary the nature and number of professional course requirements which should be taken during the freshman and sophomore years. When planning a program with an adviser, students who have determined which profession or occupation they plan to enter should study the catalog of the institution to which they plan to transfer. Students who complete a transfer program are eligible for an Associate of Arts degree or an Associate of Science degree.
Special Note: The Health Sciences degrees are the first two years of a four-year program that must be completed at a senior institution. One cannot work in these allied health professions without completing a four-year degree at a senior institution.Associate of Arts Associate of Science

Career programs Are designed for students who wish to complete a college program that will prepare them to enter employment at a level of competence requiring more than a high school education, but less than a four-year college or university degree. As such, they do not have A-E sections, but instead have sections that are specific to each program. Students who complete a career program or course will be eligible for an Associate of Science degree, an Associate of Applied Science degree, or a certificate. Career programs are specifically designed for students who wish to prepare for a career through a short, intensive program of specialized study and general education. While the emphasis in career education is on specialized offerings, each degree program includes a selection of courses from an approved core of general education.Associate of Science Associate of
